What does "Contact Acceptance" vs "Contract Approval" meanI am considering putting an offer on a short sale so the banks are obviously involved. Does Contact acceptance in this case mean when the seller has accepted the contact or when the contact has been accepted by the bank? Further what is a fair number of days to get 3rd party approval in a short sale.Thanks.July 31 2014 - Annapolis00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
